Shhh...don't tell hubby...went "shopping'!!!

Baby Boo's...aren't they fun to decorate with :)
Okay...yesterday was the twice a year "Gathering Of Friends" sale and I HAD to GO!!! It's held at Bachman's in Minneapolis and it's such a nice sale. Those dealers sure know how to decorate and display their goods. I was a good girl and just found a couple of treasures and they are for me:)
Linen...a MUST...

and Drawer's a MUST...I have a nice collection going and they are for my "someday" craft room to put stuff into...Love the details on this one and the square handle...



Ta da ... another door and trim all done. I have ONE left !!! The stain is pecan and it's on the kitchen cabinets that I also did.



Hold On...What is THIS....YES...Chocolate Wine!!! It's like chocolate milk only better and so smooth! I'm not a big wine drinker...however this is an exception! It's around 12.00 a bottle and I found it next to the liquors. My BFF in Florida told me about this! If you try it, let me know how you like it!
The temp today was 87....YES 87.... it was Wonderful!!! I was wondering why I as sweating when I was raking today...another weekend of projects! Probably no sales either...it's okay...I got a little fix on Thursday! I'll try to visit you gals...it's going to be very busy here and don't think I'll have the time I would like to be on the computer...I hope you understand...Thanks!
Have a lovely weekend!!!
Warmly,
deb :)

LOL! At least you got your shopping fix...you are too cute Deb :) Glad you found something for you to keep too. Love the ideas of the different drawers for storage in your one day craft room...I'll have to keep my eyes out for some of those drawers too!

Your doors look great and it sounds like you are on the home stretch with the projects now. Hope you have a happy weekend...by the way, anything chocolate sounds delish to me :)

Hi Deb! Been thinking about you as I got my fall stuff out!! I still love my Fall crow picture you made for me. I love to use drawers for storage also. I am working on a new craft room too! My husband finally got the paint and primer. I'll keep praying he gets it done soon!! My paint color is called macaroni!! I pray your daughter is still doing good. Take care, XO Fran.

Deb, You have shared items today that are fascinating and are new ideas to me. Boo pumpkins? Oh my gosh are they cute! They match the little white puppy that lives in my house. Collecting drawers - great idea! Pecan stain, beautiful! Chocolate Wine, who knew? Always such fun things to discover here! Elizabeth PS elizabeth.andrus@yahoo.com

Hi Deb-thanks for visiting me over at Chocolate Crafts and Bears. Now I am so happy that I happened upon this post-I just learned about "Chocolate" wine. OH MY GOSH-I have got to get me some of that!!! lol It's a must try on my list seeing how I have a bad chocolate addiction!! I will let you know if I can find it here and when I try it. It sound scrumptious.
